January 8, 2013 

  • Guinness Chicken Stew Our recipe tester used leftovers from a roast chicken to make this stew. It makes a ton, so freeze some for an easy weeknight meal. 2 tablespoons vegetable oil About 5 stalks celery, coarsely chopped 3 carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped 1 large yellow onion, coarsely chopped 1 tablespoon coarse kosher salt, plus more to taste 1 1/2 teaspoons coarsely cracked black pepper, plus more to taste 4 garlic cloves, minced 1 1/2 teaspoons dried rosemary 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme 1 cup Guinness stout 6 cups chicken stock 3 russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes 2 pounds cooked boneless skinless chicken breast, shredded into bite size pieces, about 3 cups 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley, divided 1/2 pound button mushrooms, cleaned and quartered HEAT oil in a stockpot or other large, heavy-bottomed pot over medium-low heat. Add celery, carrots, onions, 1 tablespoon salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper. Sweat vegetables until tender but not browned, about 10 minutes. Add garlic, rosemary and thyme. Sauté until garlic is softened and fragrant, 1-2 minutes. Do not brown garlic. ADD Guinness. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes to cook out alcohol bitterness. Add chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add potatoes, reduce heat to a simmer, and cover. Cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender, about 30 minutes. STIR in the chicken breast, Worcestershire sauce and half of the parsley. Simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. REMOVE pot from heat and stir in the mushrooms. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Garnish with remaining parsley. Yield: 8-10 servings

An astute reader pointed out that we had two different amounts of salt and pepper in last month’s Speciality of the House recipe for the Guinness Chicken Stew from the Hibernian Pub. Here’s the corrected recipe. Thanks to Marilyn Flannigan for pointing out our error.
